Court Records

If you are seeking court records, please note that the Clerk of the Court maintains Maricopa County Superior Court records only - we do NOT maintain records for Justice or Municipal Courts. You can also check other sources of public records by using the online docket tool


For additional details on obtaining court records, like transcripts and images, please see our Records and Court-Related Requests Media Guide. To view additional media guides, please visit the Media Guides page. 


To protect the security of the evidence, exhibits are not available to the public until a trial ends. Sealed exhibits are determined by law and court order and require further court order to make available for viewing or reproduction.
